(VIDEO) Episode 13 – “Equal Opportunity Brews”


(2017)  It’s getting warm, which means it’s the perfect time to enjoy a nice, cold, Northwest-made Lager. But just the name of this type of beer prompted talk of “loggers” which quickly turned to “lumberjacks,” which then somehow became “Sweaty, hairy chests.”  Follow that?  If not, you’re still going to have lots of fun with this one!

Enjoy this episode of Northwest Bar Night as we taste two products, offer our first impressions, then play a game to better describe these great beverages.  And we do it all from the confines of “The Factory Luxe” at the Old Rainier Brewery, a piece of local brewing history!  Don’t forget to include our hashtags when you tweet about @NWBarNight:  #BarNight  #DrinkLocal  #Beer  #Lager  #Equality  #SweatyHairyChest



This Episode’s Category:  Lager

Remember, this is a blind tasting.  We only identify the drinks as “Green” and “Blue.”  Once the panel tastes the drinks and picks a favorite, we reveal what they’re drinking.
